2010 science fiction / horror feature film. Plot: Unemployed writer, Paul Mantel, has been chosen by Sheila, an agent of "the hive" to provide food to a hungry colony of space aliens hiding in a remote Oregon forest -- aliens that have an appetite for human flesh! This film made its premier at the 2010 Big Bear Horror Film Festival in Big Bear California.

Better than you think it will be!
Keep in mind that it is to be a clone of the 1950's genre, and it succeeds nicely at that. However, the film technicals are better than anything from back then; the quality of the images is better, the continuity is excellent, the dialogue is believable, and the mood is perfect without the old, hysterical fear soundtrack
Watch as if you are back in 1956 and you will see how much better it is than would have been available at the time.
BTW, if the CGI had been perfect, it would not have emulated the genre. It works just fine!

Horrible, Just Horrible.....
I don't know what that other reviewer was talking about but the CGI that I saw looked freaking Horrible, and as far as being a tribute to 50s horror movies? Big difference between a tribute and simply being just as bad as the worst of them. I just didn't see it and I'm a huge fan of 50s horror.

A Decent Tribute to 1950s B-Movies
A slightly confusing and disappointing ending but a lot of clever lines and decent cgi for a small-scale production. John Varesio's 'monologue' at the end is the best part of the whole film by far.

Strange but awesome
What a surprise. This sci-fi/comedy seems to be set in a world existing simultaneously in both the 1950's & 2000's. Some very clever writing leads to some genuinely laugh out loud moments "Hey Steve, Tim says you're going to be the next Keanu, AHHHH!". Passable CGI completes this sci-fi package. It kept my attention from beginning to end.
I recommend playing it with VLC and turning on the dynamic audio compressor since the volume shifts more than it should.
